Talk about a lucky break … Pretty Pamela Tiffin was on vacation with her family when they took a tour of Hollywood’s Paramount Pictures. The 19-year-old was spotting by a movie producer who gave her a screen test right on the spot. The studio liked what they saw and offer Tiffin a role in their upcoming film, Summer and Smoke, which was released in 1961. After she appeared in the comedy, One, Two, Three with James Cagney, the film’s director, Billy Wilder, called Tiffin “the biggest find since Audrey Hepburn.” And all I got when I toured Paramount was a t-shirt from the gift shop.
